What you get in the Box

My testing was conducted on an overcast day, so I decided to include the Sea. This was to test how good these filters were at smoothening out the ocean. A typical Long Exposure test, at 3 different sites, using all 4 filters.

Here are 4 shots from one location;

1/4 second exposure of Spinnaker tower
NiSi 3-stop Filter (1/4 Sec Exposure) SOC

3.2 Second exposure of Spinnaker tower
NiSi 6-stop Filter (3.2 Sec Exposure) SOC

83 second exposure of Spinnaker Tower
NiSi 10-stop Filter (83 Sec Exposure) SOC

340 second exposure of Spinnaker Tower
NiSi 15-stop Filter (340 Sec exposure) Edit in Lightroom

 

My Conclusion

I love these filters. They just feel well made and really high quality. Okay, I probably won't use the 3-stop (unless I need to stack it on top of another one). And I definitely need to experiment with the polarising 6-stop some more. These are not the least expensive filters on the market, but you do get what you pay for. You can't get this quality from cheap filters. Don't be fooled by the packs you can find on Amazon or Ebay. They rarely stack up to quality filters. I've tried them and failed with them all.
